  • Day 20-Basket... @myhousethismonth .
I don’t have a woven basket to show apart from my French shopper so here’s my lovely fire basket. There’s been a few incarnations to this fireplace. When we bought the house 20 odd years ago the fireplace was boarded up with a gas heater across it. We soon opened it up again and built a brick mantel which was plastered with an old lump of wood on the top. We then found a gorgeous big fire basket that was here for a few years then sold to friends for their Norfolk house. They sold it back to us when we bought the cottage! Anyway after a few years we put in a raised gas fire line set into limestone (fashion I think!). This came out after a few years replaced with this basket and a lump of York stone. A couple of years ago we came across this beauty of a fire surround and couldn’t resist. In typical fashion we had it installed the day of my Dads 80th party! I think this is our forever one now ( I hope!)...

  • [Ellende...]
Het nieuws van gister. Dat hakte er weer even in. Vol ongeloof het nieuws gevolgd. Wat gebeuren er toch verschrikkelijke dingen. Niet alleen hier in ons land. Maar overal ter wereld. Het lijkt allemaal zo ver weg, maar het komt zo wel heel dichtbij.

Emma was helemaal van slag. Ze hadden in haar klas van de Juf te horen gekregen wat er gebeurt was. Ze leeft zo mee. Verdrietig en boos kan ze zich er om maken. Je ziet dan de vraag ik haar ogen; waarom? Waarom doen mensen dat? Ja en probeer haar dat maar eens uit te leggen. Want waarom doet iemand zoiets? Geen een reden praat zo'n actie goed. 
Vandaag is het weer een nieuwe dag. Het leven gaat door... maar toch kan ik er niks aan doen om te denken aan gisteren en hopen dat dit niet weer zal gebeuren.

Fijne dag allemaal.

I do love this daily prompt thing, I really do. It makes me think about what is in my house and makes me look around and appreciate it all. But my massive to do list beckons. 
So you have this gold coffee set, without all the accoutrements that some of you might have added. Like sugar in the bowl, coffee in the cup, and maybe a biscuit or two and a carefully draped linen napkin.
It's Royal Worcester porcelain - from the cupboards at the old family home. Never saw it in use and no idea where mum would have got it. She only ever drank instant anyway. 
And I think the set of French dark green coffee cups plus gold spoons were obtained by collecting vouchers from jars of instant coffee back in the 70s. Someone drank a lot of a certain brand because there are a lot of them.
Tablecloth is also from the family home, as was the piano (and it's a joy to play it). Ok. Tea break over, lads. Back on your heads. (Apologies to those who don't know that joke)

  • As I sit here in my son’s room waiting for him to fall asleep... I can’t help but feel so much gratitude. For my family, my job, my friends, my house, my “things”. It’s so easy to get caught up in the hustle of BUSY. We think that by being BUSY we are successful or proving to others (and ourself) that we are worthy of something. But as I sit here night after night in the quiet of Leo’s room... I’m reminded of just how beautiful silence and rest is for the soul!! I sit in here and get some time to catch up on leisure reading. I take breaks to look at this precious boy laying next to me, knowing there will come a day when he won’t NEED or want his mommy to watch him sleep. This time I treasure because it always feels like a reminder from Him of what’s important at the (literal) end of the day. It’s in the quiet moments that I find true joy that refreshes my soul. 💛🙏🏻

  • I am conflicted. On the one hand, I am SO ready for warmer temps and Spring to get here.  On the other hand, I will miss my cozy evening fires terribly.  That said, my constant battle with my husband over his arctic freezing air conditioning settings may give me cause to enjoy both simultaneously.  #winwin
